what is the a/c compressor for? what will happen if i unplug it? will unplugging it help save gas? if the compressor is unplugged can i still use the a/c? or will i just have to roll down the windows......... as you can tell im not much of a motor head yet
the compressor is used when you have the a/c on and it uses up gas. When the a/c is off it just free spins and doesn't use extra gas. Having it removed is the equavalent of turning it off, with the exception of the weight savings, which would help gas mileage slightly.
